Controlling /dev-device for USB-Mp3player (and other)
 
Hi,

I'm currently using a USB-harddrive and a USB-mp3player on my debian box. The problem is, that my fstab is never correct, since the order of which the devices are connected, determines where they are mounted under /dev/. Sometimes the mp3player is mounted as sda1, other times sdb1. This makes it very difficult to maintain a static list of mount points.

Is there any way of controlling what mount point a device is given under /dev/ ? A way that I can 'reserve' sda1 for my mp3player and sdb1 for my external harddrive?

Yes it is. You need kernel 2.6 and udev.
When you get this working, you can write rules for udev to assign devices to device files. See http://www.reactivated.net/udevrules.php
